Libertia

Libertia is a small genus from mountainous regions in temperate regions of the southern hemisphere in South America and New Zealand. All species have evergreen, sword-like leaves and lax upright racemes with white, cream or pale sky-blue flowers. They are easily grown perennials for any humus rich, very well drained, slightly moist soil in a partially shaded to sunny spot. In colder region give a very good protective mulch layer against freezing through in winter. Alternatively cultivate in pots under frostfree conditions in a cold wintergarden or unheated greenhouse at a minimum of some 5°C in winter.
Sow flat in any humus rich, well drained soil. Keep pots in a sunny, protected spot. Cultivate preferably frostfree for the first two years with a winter minimum of some 5°C. Transplant in late spring as soon as seedlings are strong enough.
All are USDA Climate Zone 7/8.
20 seeds per package.
